The Economic Limit to Moore's Law

Abstract

There have been numerous papers and discussions about the lives and deaths of Moore's Law, all of them dealing with several technological questions. In this paper, we consider economic limitations to the exponential growth of the number of components per chip. As the presented growth model shows, economics constitute indeed a potential slow-down mechanism.
